In February, Brittany Higgins went public with an allegation a male colleague raped her inside the office of Defence Minister Linda Reynolds.

Speaking at the rally today, former federal Labor MP Emma Husar said she left Federal Parliament because she was sexually harassed and “slut-shamed”.

“We’ve had enough of being maligned by the boys’ club, we’ve had enough of being raped by the men who think they can put their hands on us when they can’t,” Ms Husar said.

“We’ve had enough of being sidelined, not being paid enough and not being represented enough in leadership roles.”

The Perth protest organisers are calling on the WA government to introduce laws criminalising coercive control. 

Ms Husar said she hoped the marches would lead to real change and she encouraged survivors of sexual assault to stand together.

“We’re all tired, tired of retelling our trauma-filled stories in the hope that someone will listen and actually take action for us,” she said.

“I am asking all of those who can to stand shoulder to shoulder with us and to keep up the fight.”
